TBBW 2019 Event: Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie Bottle Release at Hidden Springs Ale Works

HiddenSpringslogoOn Thursday, March 7 at 9 a.m., Hidden Springs Ale Works (Tampa, Florida) will hit Tampa Bay Beer Week with a bottle release of the highly-coveted Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie Imperial Stout.

Far more menacing than its name would lead you to believe, Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie is a Bourbon and Rye Whiskey barrel-aged Imperial Stout that has embraced the unholy alliance that is peanut butter and marshmallow.  Weighing in at sinister 13% ABV, Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie will have you succumbing to the darkness in no time.

The Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie bottle release will take place at Hidden Springs Ale Works (1631 N. Franklin St. | Tampa, Florida) at 9 a.m. on Thursday, March 7. Bottles will be $30 each and the brewery will announce the bottle limit 15 minutes before opening. Cash is preferred, but cards will be accepted.

A couple things to keep in mind if you plan to attend this bottle release:

  • Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie will only be available in bottles, no draft
  • Once doors open at 9 a.m., the Hidden Springs Tasting Room will stay open for service
  • Parking – Remember to park in Hidden Springs’ lot directly across the street, or on the street up and down Franklin, on Henderson just west of Tampa, or on 7th Ave.
  • Once you are in line, make sure that you hug the wall so that foot traffic will not be affected on the sidewalks
  • Above all, please be respectful of the brewery’s neighbors. This is a weekday release and local businesses will be open

Since this is Tampa Bay Beer Week and there will be no shortage of stout-lovin’ beer enthusiasts in town, Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie is guaranteed to sell out rather quickly.  If you are hoping to land a bottle, just make sure that you get to Hidden Springs good and early on March 7 and hope that the beer gods shine on you when the official head count is conducted.  Best of luck out there.  Prost!

TBBW 2019 Event: Tampa Bay Beer Week Bottle Releases at Cigar City Brewing

CCBnewlogoCigar City Brewing (Tampa, Florida) has officially announced that it will hold five days of bottle releases – Sunday, March 3 through Thursday, March 7 – during Tampa Bay Beer Week (TBBW) 2019.

Last year, Cigar City surprised its fans during TBBW with a series of bottle releases that they called a Barrel-Aged Countdown to Hunahpu’s Day 2018.  Since those releases proved to be an incredible success, the brewery has decided to break out five more tempting barrel-aged brews – all Stouts this time around – for TBBW 2019.  The schedule/lineup for this year’s releases is as follows:

Bottle Release Schedule

  • Sunday, March 3Manson Lamps. | Bourbon Barrel-aged Sweet Stout with Coconut

Each beer will release on its respective date at 11 a.m. in Cigar City’s Tasting Room (3924 W. Spruce St | Tampa, Florida) for the price of $19.50 each. There are currently no bottle limits in place, but it is possible that this could change based on each day’s turnout.  You best believe that these barrel-aged goodies will sell out quickly, so make sure that you get to Cigar City Brewing as close to opening as possible for each release.  Prost!

 

TBBW 2019 Event: Magnanimous Brewing Spotlight at Angry Chair Brewing

MagnanimousLogoFor its only on-site event during Tampa Bay Beer Week (TBBW), Angry Chair Brewing (Tampa, Florida) will host Magnanimous Brewing (Tampa, Florida) for a special brewery spotlight and tap takeover at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5.

Although the taproom over at the soon-to-be-opened Magnanimous Brewing is not yet ready to accommodate guests, the Magnanimous brewers have still been hard at work concocting some seriously intriguing brews in hopes of sharing them with the beer-loving masses that will be in town for TBBW. Not wanting to see those hopes dashed, the folks at Angry Chair have offered to turn their taps over to their Magnanimous friends for a brewery spotlight on March 5.  This event will showcase the following tap list of Magnanimous brews:

  • Skull Reaper International Light Lager
  • Death To All But Citra IPA
  • Doom Swagger Strawberry Coco Nut Sweet Stout
  • Progeny Lager w/ Ella Hops
  • Vorel Table Saison w/ Helga Hops

In addition to the Magnanimous beers above, Angry Chair will be tapping a few undisclosed goodies as well.  You will just have to attend to find out what they have in store for the evening.

The Magnanimous Brewing tap takeover at Angry Chair is a free to attend, pay-as-you-go event.  Although this event is not ticketed, it is possible that the limited capacity at Angry Chair could lead to some delays when it comes to getting in or ordering a beer.  Keep that in mind just in case there happens to be a line . . . at Angry Chair . . . during TBBW. Just be patient, take a breath and have a fantastic time welcoming Magnanimous Brewing to the Tampa beer scene during TBBW 2019.  Prost!

TBBW 2019 Event: Campfire S’mores Sweet Stout Bottle Release at Rapp Brewing

RappLogoRapp Brewing Company (Seminole, Florida) has officially announced that it will be getting in on the Tampa Bay Beer Week 2019 festivities by hosting a bottle release for Campfire S’mores Sweet Stout at 4 p.m. on Friday, March 8.

It just would not be Tampa Bay Beer Week without a special bottle release from Rapp Brewing Company, and this year they are mixing things up a bit by going the Sweet Stout route.  Just as its name would lead you to believe, Campfire S’mores is a s’mores-inspired Sweet Stout filled with “that ooey gooey goodness when the marshmallow and chocolate melt together with a light char from the campfire.”  Coming in at smooth sipping 7.3% ABV, each warming sip of Campfire S’mores promises to conjure up memories of “nights camping in the wilderness and roasting s’mores on a stick.”

Campfire S’mores Sweet Stout will officially release at 4 p.m. on March 8 and is expected to sell out quickly.  This Limited Release offering will be available in 22 oz. bottles for the price of $15 each (bottle limits have yet to be determined).  Due to the limited nature of this release, Campfire S’mores will not be available on draft.  Prost!

 

TBBW 2019 Event: Angry Chair Brewing Super Rad Rare Beer Event & Bottle Release

angrychairlogo**This is an archived post covering Angry Chair’s 2019 Super Rad Rare Beer Event. If you are looking for information concerning the 2020 Super Rad Rare Beer Night and Bottle Release, click here.**  

Angry Chair Brewing (Tampa, Florida) has officially announced that it will recognize Tampa Bay Beer Week 2019 by celebrating its annual Super Rad Rare Beer Event and Bottle Release off-site at The Orpheum on Thursday, March 7.

During last year’s Tampa Bay Beer Week, one thing was made incredibly clear: just about everyone who was in town for the event was motivated to get a hold of some Angry Chair Brewing at one point or another.  Day after day, hordes of beer fans descended upon the brewery at all hours for their week of bottle releases.  Although the folks at Angry Chair were pleasantly surprised by the turnout and stoked to receive such support, their neighbors were not so happy with the situation.  Since the brewery is pretty small, lacks parking and is located at the edge of a neighborhood, this influx of humanity led to numerous logistical issues that made life difficult for the people who call that area home.

In order to keep that from happening again during Tampa Bay Beer Week 2019, Angry Chair Brewing has decided to make this year’s bottle releases a part of its annual Super Rad Rare Beer Event and move the whole thing off-site to The Orpheum in Ybor City.  This decision was made to not only respect the wishes of their neighbors, but to also provide their patrons with a better experience.  Obviously, this means that there WILL NOT be any bottle releases at Angry Chair Brewing at ANY POINT during Tampa Bay Beer Week 2019.  

Since this information will prove valuable to many, we are just going to breakdown all the details for the 2019 Super Rad Rare Beer Event and Bottle Release in effort to avoid any confusion.  Let’s get to it:

TBBW 2018 Event – Hangover Day 2018: Day of the Lagers at 7venth Sun Brewery

7venthSunBW7venth Sun Brewery (Tampa & Dunedin, Florida) has announced that it will be closing Tampa Bay Beer Week out in proper fashion by hosting Hangover Day 2018: Day of the Lagers on Sunday, March 11.

When Tampa Bay Beer Week attendees stumble out of bed on Sunday, March 11, the vast majority of them will most likely be nursing a substantial hangover picked up from the previous day’s shenanigans at Hunahpu’s Day and its ridiculous amount of after-parties.  Hair of the dog will certainly be required, and 7venth Sun Brewery will faithfully be there for the ailing masses by opening their doors at both locations for Hangover Day 2018: Day of the Lagers, an event that will feature lager and session beers from guest breweries from around the country (Tampa location only) and a “plethora of 7venth Sun beers of different styles and varieties.”  Since this event will take place at both 7venth Sun’s Tampa and Dunedin locations with a bit of variance between the two, we have a lot to go over.  Let’s break it all down:

The Basics

What – Hangover Day 2018: Day of the Lagers
When – Sunday, March 11 from noon to 10 p.m.
